'Doctor Strange' Ignites Box Office with $84.9 Million Opening
The domestic box office got a jolt in a very big way as Disney and Marvel's Doctor Strange led the weekend with an estimated $84.9 million followed by strong performances by both Fox and DreamWorks Animation's Trolls and Lionsgate's Hacksaw Ridge. Beyond just the wide releases, the continued expansion of A24's Moonlight also contributed to a top twelve that was up a whopping 133.6% compared to last weekend, generating over $182 million collectively and a weekend that was up 20.4% compared to last year. Finishing atop the weekend box office, Disney and Marvel's Doctor Strange delivered as expected, with an estimated $84.9 million from 3,882 theaters. This is the tenth largest opening for a Marvel movie finishing just behind Thor: The Dark World, the only other film from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to open in November. Compared to over single-character intros in the McU, Doctor Strange dramatically outperformed Captain America: The First Avenger and Thor,

'Inferno' Has a Meltdown, 'Madea' is #1 Again & 'Doctor Strange' Opens with $86M Overseas
Sony's Inferno experienced an opening weekend meltdown as the third film in the Robert Langdon series fell $10 million shy of expectations. As a result, and thanks to a strong second weekend hold, Tyler Perry's Boo! A Madea Halloween scored a second weekend atop the box office, dropping just 41% from its opening weekend. Meanwhile, Disney and Marvel's Doctor Strange stormed the international box office. The latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe opened in approximately half the overseas markets where it brought in an estimated $86 million ahead of its domestic release next weekend. With an estimated $16.67 million Boo! A Madea Halloween took the #1 spot at the weekend box office domestically for a second week in a row. The film's cume has now grown to $52 million as it fell just 41% in its second weekend, a spectacular performance following the film's $28.5 million opening last weekend.

'Inferno' Takes on the World Series as 'Doctor Strange' Debuts Overseas
Saturday Am Update: Sony's Inferno is looking at a weekend opening well below expectations after taking in an estimated $5.6 million on Friday from 3,576 domestic locations. It was enough for a first place finish on Friday and it looks as if it will take the #1 spot for the weekend somewhere around $16 million, but Lionsgate's Boo! A Madea Halloween is proving formidable. The Tyler Perry holiday comedy brought in an estimated $4.59 million on Friday and is expected to bring in a strong $15 million for the three-day, a drop right around 47%. Meanwhile, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back is looking at a much steeper drop than projected. The film brought in an estimated $2.9 million on Friday and is looking at a second weekend around $9.7 million, a 58% drop. Fip's limited release of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is looking strong already with an estimated $765,000 on Friday, heading toward a weekend that could top $2.5 million and a top ten finish.

First Look at Danny Trejo & Danny Glover in 'Bad Ass 3'
Samuel Goldwyn Films proudly announced today a day and date release of March 6, 2015 of writer/director Craig Moss' third installment in the successful Bad Ass action-comedy franchise Bad Asses on the Bayou. Bad Asses on the Bayou reunites the dynamic duo, Frank Vega (Danny Trejo) and Bernie Pope (Danny Glover), as they travel to Louisiana to attend the wedding of their dear friend Carmen Gutierrez (Loni Love). What was pictured as a wedding weekend escape to the south turns violently ugly as madness and mayhem ensue, pressing our senior heroes to once again serve justice.

Joining the Bad Asses on the Bayou ensemble is veteran actor John Amos (Die Hard 2: Die Harder, Tyler Perry's Madea's Witness Protection, Good Times, Roots) as Earl Morgan, father of bride-to-be and Carol Sutton (The Help, 21 Jump Street) as her mother, Lois Morgan.

'Hobbit' Adumbrates 'Anchorman 2'

'Hobbit' Adumbrates 'Anchorman 2'
The anticipated sequel Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues drew droves of moviegoers over the weekend, but not enough to supplant another sequel for the top spot at the box office.

Anchorman, starring Will Ferrell, Christina Applegate, Steve Carell, and Paul Rudd, piled up an estimated $26.8 million domestic over the weekend, which wasn't enough to exceed last week's box-office topper The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

Video: Ferrell Talks Kanye 'Anchorman 2' Rap Battle

The Hobbit raked in a steady $31.5 million in its second weekend at the box office, bringing its gross domestic total to $127.5 million. Although Anchorman finished below The Hobbit over the weekend, the film accumulated $40 million total from its Wednesday opening through Sunday.

With Anchorman occupying the No. 2 spot in the Top 10, the animated film Frozen was bumped down to No. 3, but still amassed $19.1 million for its fifth weekend in theaters to improve to $191.6 million in its impressive run.

Weekend Report: 'Smaug' Sets Fire to Box Office, Misses First 'Hobbit's Mark

Weekend Report: 'Smaug' Sets Fire to Box Office, Misses First 'Hobbit's Mark
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug had a mighty debut this weekend, though it still fell noticeably short of its predecessor. Meanwhile, A Madea Christmas set a new low among Tyler Perry's Madea movies.Smaug banked $73.65 million, which ranks fourth all-time in the month of December. Unfortunately, it's off 13 percent from last year's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, which set the December record with $84.6 million. It's also lower than I Am Legend ($77.2 million) and Avatar ($77 million).When An Unexpected Journey opened last year, it was benefiting from nine years of pent-up demand for a follow-up to The Lord of the Rings, which is one of the most widely loved franchises ever. Audiences weren't as enamored with An Unexpected Journey, though, which made a subsequent drop for Smaug seem inevitable. The fact that Smaug was able to retain such a large percentage of the audience is a tribute to the loyalty of the fanbase,

Razzies 2013: Twilight 'wins' big at the 33rd Golden Raspberry Awards

With eleven nominations under its belt, there was little doubt that The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 was going to be in for a rough ride last night as the Magicopolis theater in Santa Monica, California played host to the 33rd Golden Raspberry Awards - a.k.a. The Razzies - which celebrates that absolute worst in cinematic achievement from the past twelve months.

The final instalment of The Twilight Saga received seven awards in total: Worst Picture, Worst Director (Bill Condon), Worst Actress (Kristen Stewart, shared with Snow White and the Huntsman), Worst Supporting Actor (Taylor Lautner), Worst Screen Ensemble, Worst Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel and Worst Screen Couple (Mackenzie Foy and Taylor Lautner). Perhaps the Razzies took the opportunity to 'honour' the Twilight franchise as a whole, much like the Academy Awards did with The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King back in 2004?

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 Takes Home 7 Razzie Awards

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 Takes Home 7 Razzie Awards
This year saw yet another Razzie sweep, but this one was incomplete: Although The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 went into the 33rd Annual Razzie Awards race with a near-record 11 nominations (more nods than there were categories) it only managed to "win" seven spray-painted statuettes, including Worst Picture, Worst Actress (Kristen Stewart) Worst Supporting Actor (Taylor Lautner), Worst Screen Couple (Lautner and 12 year-old Mackenzie Foy) and Worst Screen Ensemble. Throw in Worst Remake/Rip-Off or Sequel and Worst Director for Bill Condon, and the fifth and final Twilight film is 2012's most-Razzed movie. But Twilight S.B.D. #2 (as Razzie wags prefer to refer to it) still fell short of last year's unprecedented all-ten-category sweep by Adam Sandler's Jack and Jill. Sandler wasn't totally over-looked, though: The aging, schlubby comic took the Worst Actor Razzie for the second year in a row, and his film That's My Boy

Meanwhile Razzie favourite Adam Sandler also has a strong presence, picking up eight nominations for That's My Boy, while Battleship followed closely with seven.

Razzies: 'Breaking Dawn' Leads Race For Suckiest Movie of 2012

The 33rd annual Razzie Awards announced their official nominations today and "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" led the way, earning a whopping 11 nominations along with the unofficial title of crappiest movie of the year.

A title that will no doubt become official once the winners are announced on February 23. In fact, Razzie voters think "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" is so bad that they actually gave it more nominations (11) than there are categories (10).

Suffice it to say that there's no point in even listing which categories the film was nominated in, as it was nominated in every single one of them, as well as twice for Worst Screen Couple (Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart on the one hand and Taylor Lautner and Mackenzie Foy on the other).

But don't worry, Twihards, because "Breaking Dawn" had good company, if by good company you mean "really bad company," as perennial

Haters Gonna Hate: Twilight Breaking Dawn 2 Leads Razzie Noms for Worst in Film

  • kidspickflicks
Every year on the day before the Academy Award nominations announced their nominees for the best in film, the Razzies announce their list of nominees for the worst in film. Increasingly, though, it's become a place for haters to hate. Additionally, the nominations aren't productive, they seem to be out to humiliate actors. For instance, it's incredibly unjust to nominate The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 (the best of the series) at all, but certainly not for acting or screenplay. The screenplay, which is adapted from the Stephenie Myer book, actually added in one of the most brilliant twists in modern day moviemaking. As moviegoers, we've all been disappointed from time to time in the acting work by an esteemed actor; for instance, I felt the great Sigourney Weaver phoned in her performance in Avatar which brought the quality of the film down. But to criticize an actor for  performing

Razzies Got It Wrong: In Defense Of 'Twilight: Breaking Dawn - Part 2'

Razzies Got It Wrong: In Defense Of 'Twilight: Breaking Dawn - Part 2'
Before we say anything else, there's something that must be said. Yes, we are MTV, the same MTV that, for the past five years, has heaped Golden Popcorn onto "The Twilight Saga," an otherwise award-less franchise. (Hey, sorry for giving our audience what they want, right?) We've been a home for wayward Twi-hards from the very beginning, but before you dismiss what we have to say, hear us out.

"Breaking Dawn - Part 2" simply did not deserve the public shaming at the hands of the Razzies, who officially announced their Worst Achievement in Film nominees today.

The anti-Academy Awards, which traditionally announce their nominees a day before their unironic counterpart, unleashed 11 nominations for Golden Raspberries onto the fifth "Twilight" film, despite there only being ten categories. The closest contender, "That's My Boy," only managed to fail to the tune of eight nominations.

Hardy har har. The "Twilight" movies aren't great cinema.

Tyler Perry Picks Up Razzie Nominations For Worst Actor And Worst Actress (Wait... What?)

Out with the good (the Oscars)... in with the bad (the Razzies) - celebrating, or is it shaming the worst of the year 2012, I give you the Razzie nominees announced this morning.  Of note, as the title of this post states, Tyler Perry dominates the list, picking up noms in 5 of the 9 categories, including for Worst Actress for his performance as Madea in Madea's Witness Protection, Worst Actor for his performance (not in drag) in Alex Cross and Good Deeds, Worst Director, Worst Screen Couple (himself and Madea) and Worst Ensemble Cast. So he's nominated for Razzies for the same work he's being lauded for by the NAACP...
